Laura & Graham {Harrison Wedding Photographer}

Well…. I am again this year WAY behind in my blogging!!!  So I will be doing something called speed blogging all my weddings for the summer… it will be short and sweet in my words and instead we will focus on the images.  I am very excited to share Graham and Laura’s wedding shot here at the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel… so gorgeous!

Christy & Adam {Pitt Meadows Wedding Photographer}

I loved this day, it was beautiful.  The wedding was at Swaneset Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows, this was my first time shooting there and it did not disappoint!   If you know Christy she has everything planned out, right to the minute and this is exactly what she had for her day.  As a photographer I love the accurate timeline and schedule.  I was really excited to explore this new venue for me and get amazing shots for this lovely couple.  I hope you love them as much as I do!!

Jade & Lindsey {Chilliwack Wedding Photography}

This session was so fun and the view was incredible!!  I have been wanting to go to new locations, explore and find gems that is special for my couples and inspirational for me as well.  I’m in love with Chilliwack Lake, its so gorgeous and serene.  I really wanted to do a canoe shoot and so Lindsey and Jade were so kind to find one and haul it to the lake.  They truly made my canoe dreams come true.  ♥

Blessed Beyond Measure {Abbotsford Mother’s Day Photographer}

I am so honoured to be able to share Feather’s story, she is such an inspiration and is amazing in her love for God and her two girls. We had chatted about doing photos and came up with this amazing slideshow telling her story from where she came from to where she is now.  Talking with her I have realized as a mother, how important photos are, and that getting these images with your children matter… looking back I wish I did more photos with my girls as babies and even now stepping in front of the camera more often, and not always being behind it.  I felt like I wanted to do that for Feather, get these images for her and for her girls to cherish for a lifetime.  Painting the pink in her hair was very significant as its next to the image of her girls painting her head when they were little.  She wanted the two side by side, showing where she came from and where she is now… she is strong, courageous and inspirational and I am so thankful to share this story.

Click  HERE to see the slideshow and hear her amazing story!

In honour of Mother’s Day coming up, I am offering 50% off all the digital image collections for a shoot with moms and their children.   I will be donating the other 50% of the collections to CIBC Run For The Cure since April is cancer awareness month and my family has also been touched by cancer, so it sure hits close to home.  It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, we all deserve to have these images for years to come.  Please contact for further details.

The Loft Hair Salon will also be offering with the photo shoot a blowout and makeup application for $60 donating $5 to Crystal Gala Breast Health Clinic In Abbotsford  (Value $80) ….. so spoil yourself with having your hair and makeup done.

Steve and Coralie {Abbotsford Wedding Photographer}

This wedding was incredible, an amazing way to start my 2015 year.  Coralie and Steve are two of the most genuine people I have ever met. Their faith in God, care for their friends and family, and love for each other really make them special.  Their engagement session was AMAZING!   These two smouldered in each other and their chemistry is undeniable so you could imagine their wedding was no different.  I had Shawn by my side, it’s so great to have a second shooter getting all those extra angles and emotions! I asked Coralie a couple of questions after the wedding, it’s neat to hear the couple look back on one of the most memorable days of their lives.

I wanted to know what Coralie thought when she saw Steve for the first time….  “When I saw my husband-to-be for the first time, it was pretty surreal. I was trying to process the fact that we were about to get married. He looked SO handsome and I was SO glad to be beside him finally, holding his hand, as his wife-to-be on our wedding day.”

I asked her what her best detail was….   “My favourite detail was probably the tin cans I made. I’d antiqued pages from a physics textbook (for Stephen, the physics/math teacher), maps of places we’d both travelled to and want to travel to, and sheet music (for me, the singer and music lover) and then mod podged them onto soup and tomato cans that would hold pencils and flowers as part of the table centrepieces. I didn’t really realize how big of a project I was doing when I decided to do it but I’m very happy with how they turned out.”

From C “My favourite part of the wedding was having almost all the people I love the most in one place.”
2015-04-12_0064.jpg

From Coralie and Steve…  “We’re the most excited about not having to part ways anymore after we say good night and waking up beside each other the next morning.”
